Uber pays $148m over data breach cover-up
Ride-hailing firm Uber is paying $148m to settle legal action over a cyber-attack that exposed data from 57 million customers and drivers. The massive breach happened in 2016 but Uber sought to hide it from regulators. The payment settles action brought by the US government and 50 states over Uber's failure to disclose details of the data loss. Uber revealed some information about the breach in November 2017 and admitted that it should have been more open about the attack. The personal data from 57 million Uber accounts also included information about 600,000 driving licence numbers.
